JUST ARRIVED IN NEW ENGLAND!!!! Fostering Locally!
A little family of 6 puppies, 5 girls and 1 boy surrendered to a shelter in Mississippi at about 8 weeks so age - momma has actually stayed behind with her owner and she is now spayed - no more babies for her; the owner asked if the shelter would help find them good homes so they wouldn’t be worried.
Just 10 weeks old now, we are just getting to know them - they’ve arrived to their local foster homes throughout New England - their little personalities will make themselves known.
For now we can tell you that they are cute, healthy, have two rounds of puppy vaccines and are not house-trained!!
If you can’t resist this face… don’t wait - apply now - you’re not obligated to adopt!!

ATTENTION PUPPY ADOPTERS: You will be required to attend training/behavior classes with your new dog unless you are experienced dog owners and your adoption coordinator is comfortable with your experience. This requirement is for the benefit of you and your puppy so if you experience behavior issues you have a point of contact.
PLEASE - Think long and hard before adopting a puppy - consider the lifestyle change this puppy will come with - he cannot be crated for more than 3-4 hours at a time until he’s older, puppy proofing your home will be necessary, puppies scratch and nip so if you have small children, can they handle this?? Training will be so important in this puppy’s life, do you have the time??
Please review this checklist for socializing puppies - do you have the time - ask yourself before adopting.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION -
Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.
Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
